Give Clean Water & the 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro

It's been a while. So many good things happening in my world. One of the upcoming cool events in my life will be participating in this year's 2013 Volcom Fiji Pro with Give Clean Water. The event runs from June 2nd - 14th.

Give Clean Water is teaming up with Volcom and Tavarua Island to install clean drinking water filters in 2 villages in Fiji. 34 of the top surfers in the world will take part in one of the most elite surf contests on the planet. As part of the contest, there will a day of service in which the surfers, sponsors, and event staff will travel to Cuvu village for a day of water filter installs. Each family in that village will receive a water filter kit capable of providing a lifetime of bacteria free drinking water.

Give Clean Water is committed to the sustainability of the clean drinking water project in Fiji, working with the Fiji Ministry of Health to follow up in each of the villages that receive water filters. Together, the partnership of Volcom, Tavarua Island, and Give Clean Water is making a huge impact on the lives of the people of Fiji!

The bonus of this trip...some of the best surf in the world! The ASP world tour is not only full of great surfers, but great people who love making a difference in the world. Last year's day of service included surfing greats Kelly Slater, CJ Hobgood, and big wave rider Alex Grey!

You can check out all the action of this year's contest on the Volcom website, or by downloaded the Volcom app on your smart device.
